Intuitive and interactive features


Tumult Hype’s keyframe-based animation system brings your content to life. Click “Record” and Tumult Hype watches your every move, automatically creating keyframes as needed. Or, if you’d prefer to be more hands-on, manually add, remove, and re-arrange keyframes to fine-tune your content. It is easy to create natural curves by clicking and dragging on an element's motion path to add bézier control points.

Animation Interface


Timelines for the scene can be added and play when triggered by actions. This capability lets you add interactivity — mousing over an element could trigger a timeline to play which animates other elements in the scene.



Engage your viewers and trigger custom animations, scene transitions, sounds, or JavaScript functions in response to actions like mouse clicks, touch events, specific times, or document events.


Scenes are similar to slides in presentation software, and are a great way to simplify animation flow or separate content. Tumult Hype lets you make as many scenes as needed, and a variety of actions can switch between scenes using smooth transitions.

When exporting, Tumult Hype creates an entirely self-contained directory that holds all the resources and JavaScript for your content. Upload that directory to your web server, copy and paste three lines of HTML into your existing web page, and you’re good to go. Tumult Hype also supports exporting to MP4 Video, Animated GIF, and iBooks Author to create interactive textbooks.



Tumult Hype provides a rich set of tools for styling, but sometimes you need to get hands-on. Every element’s inner HTML is only a couple clicks away and all of your changes are rendered on the fly, giving you a live preview as you edit.
